I feel I must reply to comments that it is not horizontal. The house is actually on a curve, so it would be impossible to make the whole pavement line up.

Hello from the Critique Club!
Hi Gina

Well, my first impression of this picture is definitely colour. Everything is a tiny bit over saturated, so it all sticks out! The fact that it all sticks out kind of makes it all ... flat. There seems to be no horizon or depth in the photo. Kind of like a painting, which is a very cool effect, if you ask me. It seems like you took this around 12 noon or something, which made the lighting quite harsh and bright.
Something that could help a bit is if you make the picture straight. it seems the camera was tilted to the left a bit; unless the road was a bit tilted, it just doesn't look like it was intentional, which makes it look you didn't plan it that way.
I like the fact that this isn't the conventional type of "colour" photo for this challenge. Well done, good capture, and good luck in the following challenges.

Good subject for a 'statement', but it's not very comfortable to look at. The red is a bit too harsh, and a border could have helped.

Interesting shot. It could probably benefit from rotation to make it horizontal.

Interesting shot - I'm not sure how color affects it and it meets the challenge. Any picture taken in color has SOME color in it...*shrug* Anyways - the trees are underexposed, too, but it has a nice 'framing' to it.

Nice image and creative idea. I think that maybe there is too much light in the image or something, because some of the image doesn't seems to have much value in it.

Nicely done, I like the over saturated look here. I think it works well.
